Honkai Star Rail is the newest game released by HoYoverse. It takes a different approach to gameplay than their previous game Genshin Impact. The combat in this game features a turn-based mechanic. There are actually more types and classifications for the characters as Honkai: Star Rail features the different Paths and Element types in the game.
Each of the characters has an element type associated with them. On top of that, the characters in this game also have another classification called Path. Path decides which role the character falls in, and in this article, we will go through all the path types for a character and which character falls in which type in Honkai Star Rail.
Honkai Star Rail all Paths and their specialties
Honkai Star Rail has seven different paths for the characters. Any character in the game releases with a pre-determined path, and you cannot change it. But the paths give a good understanding of how the character is going to be played in the game. Here is a table showing all the paths, what each path means, and all the characters under that path.
|Support path specialized in healing. Can have solo or team healing capabilities.
|All rounded characters. Has good DPS as well as great survivability. Suitable for various combat senarios.
|A DPS character that specializes in multi-target damage. So all the skills will be focused on dealing damage to multiple targets.
|A DPS character specialized in Single-target damage. Can do a large amount of damage to a single target. Great for boss/elite fights.
|Support characters mainly specialized in buffing the team with different combat enhancements.
|Characters specialized in debuffing enemies. They can reduce the combat capabilities of your opponent.
|Characters that specializes in providing shield, damage reduction, and increases survivability for the whole party.
These are all the paths you have in Honkai Star Rail. One exception to the locked path is the main character of the game as Trailblazer can change its element type. Alongside this change in element, its path also changes. Other than that, no other character can change its path and in the future, new paths may be introduced with further updates.
